The poor, weak and helpless would be cared for

 

No one would go to bed hungry at night

 

No child would be deprived of education because the parents could

 

not afford the fees

 

No one would die for lack of medical aid.

 

I am happy to tell you that through your contribution, various

needs of our parish like SCC's and association's activities,

Catechism, have carried on, many poor are helped to have a decent

living, children are educated.

 

At the outset i want to thank you all for all the contribution

received from you. And as the last quarter of the financial year

2011-2012, want to remind other's to contribute 1% (or more) of

their income. This will enable us to reach to the last year collection

Thought of the day
    Tuesday of the Sixth Week in Ordinary Time LECTIONARY 336 FIRST READING JAS 1:12-18 Blessed is he who perseveres in temptation, for when he has been proven he will receive the crown of life that he promised to those who love him. No one experiencing temptation should say, "I am being tempted by God"; for God is not subject to temptation to evil, and he himself tempts no one. Rather, each person is tempted when lured and enticed by his desire. Then desire conceives and brings forth sin, and when sin reaches maturity it gives birth to death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers and sisters: all good giving and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no alteration or shadow caused by change. He willed to give us birth by the word of truth that we may be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. PSALM PS 94:12-13A, 14-15, 18-19 Response: Blessed the man you instruct, O Lord Blessed the man whom you instruct, O LORD, whom by your law you teach, Giving him rest from evil days. For the LORD will not cast off his people, nor abandon his inheritance; But judgment shall again be with justice, and all the upright of heart shall follow it. When I say, "My foot is slipping," your mercy, O LORD, sustains me; When cares abound within me, your comfort gladdens my soul. GOSPEL verses The disciples had forgotten to bring bread, and they had only one loaf with them in the boat. Jesus enjoined them, "Watch out, guard against the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod." They concluded among themselves that it was because they had no bread. When he became aware of this he said to them, "Why do you conclude that it is because you have no bread? Do you not yet understand or comprehend? Are your hearts hardened? Do you have eyes and not see, ears and not hear? And do you not remember, when I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many wicker baskets full of fragments you picked up?" They answered him, "Twelve." "When I broke the seven loaves for the four thousand, how many full baskets of fragments did you pick up?" They answered him, "Seven." He said to them, "Do you still not understand?" Source -https://www.archdioceseofbombay.org/
